I just come back from a two-week holiday trip to Fanconia. It was great. My wife and me made a jaunt to Egloffstein, a neat little village in the heart of Northern Bavaria, to have lunch at "Gasthof zur Post". I remembered about the credits of the album Balance Of Power, ELO resided at "Hotel zur Post" while recording a part of the album at Hartmann Digital in Untertrubach (a one horse town, just a few minutes away from Egloffstein). I was able to locate the hotel's guest book of 1985 and found a dedication from the band (Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan, Richard Tandy and their assistant Phil Copestake) Here's a photo of the "Gasthof zur Post" and the dedication in the guest book. BTW, another recording location was Nassau, Bahamas, quite the opposite of Egloffstein.
